Quotes

Charles: Well, do you think that would work? Following her around London like a pet dog.
Julian Cristoforou: Well, Orfeus tried to lead his girl out of hell by not looking at her. Let Belinda lead you by not speaking. Do you think that's so silly? How many people would become married, in fact as well as law, if they just shut up and looked and listened and heard each other's heartbeats of the daytime?

Number 4 All Time Personal Favorite
28 September 2002 | by (Niagara Falls, Canada) – See all my reviews

This film is no big name blockbuster, but it's undeniably my fourth most favorite flick of all times. The picture's whimsical feeling and dreamy musical score make it a must see for any B movie buff. Liberal Belinda's (Mia Farrow) growing impatience towards Charles' (Michael Jayston) stuffy attitude towards marriage's expectations set the scene for a delightfully entertaining comedy-drama. Julian Cristoforou (Topal) delivers a hilarious look at an impartial party's view on troubled life in the home place. I was fortunate enough to videotape the feature from television years ago in anticipation of it never making it to manufacturers release. I always had a soft spot in my heart for the underdog films, and in my opinion this one never garnered the kudos it rightly deserves. A definite 10 out of 10 !!
